Don't toggle the Discreet GPU

ST seems to sometimes toggle the Discreet GPU. This is a drain on the battery, and I don't understand why an app like ST needs such a powerful GPU. Could the next version make sure that this doesn't happen? :)


I'm on a rBMP running OS X 10.8.2.

I've noticed this happens whenever an open/save dialog box appears. The app always activates the discrete GPU and then keeps it on until I quit and relaunch it. Very annoying, and clearly a bug.
